Tasting Notes

The 2016 Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 1er Cru demonstrates more new oak on the nose compared to its peers, denser and perhaps more opaque, touches of blackberry, raspberry and a hint of tomato vine. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, well integrated oak, quite dense and maybe modern in style, yet well crafted with a satin-like mouthfeel on the finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy.

(from a very good yield of 40 hectoliters per hectare, as this vineyard, which Weber told me "usually gets hit by something or other," was not affected by frost in 2016): Good dark red. Alluring, mellow aromas and flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, spices and minerals, plus a suggestion of toffee. Round, silky and plush, offering mouthfilling voluptuousness without losing its shape. The compellingly round, sweet finish shows a fine dusting of tannins and superb length. Absolutely no sign of vine stress here!
